Why you’ll love this recipe:

What is A Quiche?

Quiche is a French quiche made of a pastry crust filled with savory custard and bits of cheese, pork, fish, or vegetables. The most well-known variation is quiche Lorraine, which contains lardons or bacon. Quiche can be served either warm or cold. It is well-known around the world.

Ingredients That You’ll Need:

This Jamie Oliver veggie quiche dish is a knockout that will wow the whole family! Leftovers reheat well as well.

  • Crust: We’re preparing a quick and basic whole wheat flour crust, but store-bought crust or puff pastry would also be delicious!
  • Eggs: Six big eggs are ideal for this recipe.
  • Veggies: Mushrooms, zucchini, tomato, spinach, onion, and garlic provide a lot of flavor to this dish. Sun-dried tomatoes, bell peppers, and broccoli would also be delicious. Get ideas from your vegetable drawer! You may even use leftover roasted vegetables.
  • Milk: I usually keep unsweetened almond milk on hand, but full, 2 percent, or whatever you have on hand would suffice! You may even use the half-and-half that you put in your coffee.
  • Feta cheese: For tang and Middle eastern flare, delish. Goat cheese would also be delicious! It’s a good idea to add some more cheese on top.
  • Herbs: Oregano in the filling for added flavor, and “I enjoy rosemary in the crust for a change of pace.” Basil would also be fantastic.

What veggies go with quiche?

Any roasted veggies you enjoy will be delicious in quiche. You only need to sauté them first so you don’t end up with a soggy bottom or an under-baked core. Oh my goodness!

I like to use onion, cooked sweet potatoes or squash, bell pepper, broccoli, asparagus, spinach, mushrooms, tomatoes, and zucchini.

How To Make Jamie Oliver Vegetarian Quiche?

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Coat a circular pie pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt. Whisk together the oil and water in a small bowl until thickened. Mix in the herbs. Mix the wet ingredients into the flour mixture until it is barely mixed.
  3. Spread dough onto a pie plate, spreading it up the edges with your fingertips (you can also use a rolling pin to flatten it before putting it in the pan).
  4. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. When the oil is heated, add the onion and a bit of salt and simmer for about 5 minutes. Combine the garlic, tomato, zucchini, and mushrooms in a mixing bowl. Cook for another 10 minutes, or until the vegetables have softened. Cook for 1-2 minutes, or until the greens are wilted, with the oregano, salt, and pepper. Place the vegetables in the dish with the uncooked crust.
  5. In a medium mixing dish, combine the eggs, milk, feta, and cheddar. Pour over the vegetables. If preferred, top with a sprinkling of additional cheddar. Bake for 50-55 minutes, or until the quiche has firmed up. Allow the quiche to cool for 15 minutes before slicing and serving.

Recipe Tips

  • I recommend using prepared refrigerated pie crust to save time in the kitchen. You may prepare your dough, but I prefer to keep things simple and take shortcuts whenever feasible!
  • If you don’t like mushy vegetables, don’t sauté or prepare them ahead of time. This not only cuts your prep time by a few minutes, but it also allows the vegetables to retain some of their texture, which provides a nice contrast to the fluffy egg texture.
  • If you’re a cheese enthusiast like me, consider adding a little additional cheese on top of the quiche before baking it.

FAQ Section

What is the difference between quiche Lorraine and quiche?

The quiche must be cooked with eggs, heavy cream, bacon, and Swiss cheese to be termed, Quiche Lorraine. Any quiche that deviates from this recipe by excluding bacon or adding other components such as ham, sausage, veggies, etc. is referred to as quiche rather than Quiche Lorraine.

Why is my quiche soggy?

Undercooking the vegetables ahead of time may result in too much water being released while cooking, especially with more watery vegetables.
Too much milk prevents the proteins in your eggs from setting, resulting in a watery quiche.
Overbaking the quiche might cause the eggs to lose water, so bake it only until it’s set.

What is the secret to making good quiche?

The ideal fluffy egg filling is the number one technique for making a delicious quiche. With the exception of the add-ins and cheese (which we’ll discuss later), quiche is really simply egg and milk. It couldn’t be easier to figure out your proportions — half a cup of milk is required for each egg.
